Manager Comments on 2013 Federal Budget

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 26, 2013) - (TSX:OCS.UN)(TSX:OSL.UN)


On March 21, 2013, the Minister of Finance announced proposed measures which would affect certain tax benefits of the distributions paid to taxable unitholders of investment funds, such as OCP Credit Strategy Fund (TSX:OCS.UN) and OCP Senior Credit Fund (TSX:OSL.UN) (collectively, the "Funds"), that utilize forward purchase and sale agreements to obtain exposure to an underlying reference portfolio. Based on its review to date, Onex Credit Partners, LLC, the manager of the Funds (the "Manager"), believes that the Funds and the tax characterization of distributions received by unitholders will be unaffected until the expiration of the forward agreements (OCS.UN: November 2014 & OSL.UN: November 2015). The Manager awaits further guidance from the Federal Government on the implementation of the budget proposals and will provide additional details as soon as it is in a position to do so.
